Oh yes! I have learned the art of making a Mint Julep, and it is a wonderful thing. I know some people think it is a waste of good bourbon, but i think they are mistaken. Don't get me wrong now, i am one of the first to say that ice messes up bourbon, but these things are glorious. They are amazingly refreshing, and cool.... the glass frosts up on the outside, and the mint, and the sugar. I am also not one for sweet drinks, but damn. These things are amazing. This gets my number one vote for best drink of the summer. I guess you could say No.2 would be a nice cold beer, and No.3 best summer drink is a Salty Dog.
